Undefeated in district heading to the playoffs

The Franklin Lions pounded the Clifton Cubs 47-0 to wrap up an undefeated district championship Friday night at Cub Stadium.

It is the Lions tenth district crown in the last 14 years, and the first for head coach Mark Fannin after he took over for legendary coach Mike Hedrick this season.

“I couldn’t be more proud of these kids,” said Fannin. “They bought in to everything we have asked them to do from the first practice in August. I feel like we are getting better every week and just need to keep working hard as we get ready for the playoffs.”

The No. 6 Lions will have an open date this week before kicking off postseason play next week against to fourth place team from District 14-3A.
